    You have done an amazing job of responding to the current COVID 19 Pandemic and demonstrated your resiliency. As we end the 2019-2020 school year, let us celebrate the Class of 2020. While they have missed many traditional senior year events, they are a part of a historical event that may help us all be more humanitarian in our future. 

    I thank you for your willingness to finish strong!  It has been a challenging ending to the school year, but I hope you have found ways to embrace the change to our familiar routines. We have all learned to adapt.

    In life, sometimes we have little control over what happens to us, but we have full control over how we choose to respond. Thank you for adapting to new ways to learn, communicate, and grow. I believe we all will be stronger when we come out on the other side of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

    You may use Achieve 3000 this summer and you also can find the links to the list of suggested secondary summer reading and the summer ebook reading list in the reading resources.

    I look forward to seeing you face to face soon, have an enjoyable summer and stay safe.. I leave you with this.....

    The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.
